I want my family to put their stuff away. I want the rule to be: If you got it out, put it away. If it's empty, throw it away. If it's dirty, put it in the dishwasher or the laundry basket. If it's clean, put it where it belongs.
I hate, hate, hate matching and folding socks. When I do it, please wisk them away and get them out of my sight.
See the white box, just behind the shoes on the floor? It's the box we keep shoes in when we aren't wearing them. Sooooo, close and yet so far. We have the same problem with items that go in the dishwasher, trash compactor, and laundry baskets.
If you burn them onto your iPod, MP3 or other listening device, put them away. Please. My office is messy enough as it is.
This may belong in another category, but the fact that the toilet paper package is sitting on top the counter with two rolls left in it means two things:
1. At least one roll has already been used. That means this has been sitting here a while.
2. The cabinet that the toilet paper lives in is just below it. See picture #2 and description.
I will give bonus points to whomever actually put a new roll on the roller. We had trouble with that idea for a very long time after the Toilet Paper Fairy quit.
These items sat on the kitchen table for two weeks. I asked that they be put away. They got moved to the counter in the dining room.
Away: adverb |əˈwā| 2. into an appropriate place for storage or safekeeping
What would make this scenario okay--put them nicely as a pair up against the baseboard. These shoes are by the back door.
We go in and out all day. Shoes are required.
If any of my family believes this is just too much to ask, then consider getting me this, instead.
All my love,
